I started out going to a football field mostly; the measurements already being there was nice. It's usually mowed (even in the off-season). Mine has concrete behind both end zones (a long jump runway and a high jump pad).
Recently, though, I discovered a net batting cage. It is AWESOME!!! 600+ throws in 2 hours; where else can you do that? It's a tunnel shot that doesn't wreck your discs if you miss. Decent footing everywhere ... just everything I ever wanted out of a practice spot. Other than being able to tell where your disc would have gone (how far, how much fade, etc.), but that doesn't matter that much, right?
I want to throw on a golf driving range. I drive past one all the time, and think "That'd be awesome"
I normally do field work at a soccer complex in a park. Multiple soccer fields, for limitless distance in all directions. Great for really working on distance, since there is zero shot of losing a disc.
